How easy it is to fall so hard
For someone always beyond my reach.
To love this shadow of a silhouette
A person I have never met.
This image of complete perfection
An icon of collective imagining.
It is so easy to fall in love,
And to be hurt when it is not enough.
The pain is easy felt as well
When closeness is shown to be
A total illusion of the mind
To which I am so entwined.
